Once I log in to https://www.lds.org/notes and try and create a new note. But I can't find the new button for the life of me?

You have to be in a notebook to create a note – after you open a notebook, you should see a pencil in a square icon on the left.

My main gripe may have to do with how I use the tools:

1. I'm teaching a lesson so I login, go to the manual, and start making notes all in a single notebook
2. I go through the lesson top to bottom, marking things in the order I would teach them, adding links, scriptures, etc
3. I go to the notebook page
4. EVERYTHING IS IN THE REVERSE ORDER OF HOW I WROTE IT.

This is infuriating. Imagine you're taking notes in a notebook in college and then when you go to study the end of the lesson is at the top! I could forgive this if I could re-order them manually (I believe we previously could) OR if I could COPY AND PASTE THE TEXT OF MY OWN NOTE. The notebook is a nightmare of frames within frames and when I try to click on the text in front of me to copy it to a word document so I can, you know, follow my own notes, it takes me to the verse or talk or manual page where I made the note.
I hope something is fixed because right now notebooks are next to useless. I wish there was a paper manual and I could write in the margins just so I can have something coherent on Sunday to work from.

You can reorder the notes in a notebook in the Gospel Library app (which syncs with the LDS.org notes). I'd recommend sending feedback using the Feedback link at the bottom of the notes page. It would make sense to be able to reorder notes online, and also to be able to select the text of highlighted passages to copy/paste. I like having the newest notes added to the top by default, but my use case isn't preparing a lesson.
